Get Started Earning A Smart Income Online

Hi, I’m Al Rubio, river guide and online marketer, among other things. That’s me in the photo wearing yellow. If you’re new to the idea of earning money on the internet, don’t worry- We’ll be covering the best ways to get started, and we’ll also take a look at the proven methods that work for the top internet marketers today. There is a lot of money that moves around the internet on a daily basis. With the right tools and techniques, you can set up websites that earn substantial commissions with various affiliate programs. I can show you how.


A Smart Income Online: My Definition

The smartest income streams are the ones that are truly automated. I’m sure you’ve seen websites where you can order some digital product, and download it instantly. If you purchase an e-book online, the link you click will usually be an affiliate link. The person running the website might be getting a 75 percent commission from every sale. Seventy-five percent! Now imagine publishing your own e-book, and keeping almost 100 percent of the sale! That is one strategy that many people are using today. The point here is the automation of the whole process. A smart income online lets you reap the rewards long after you complete the initial work of setting up the site.


What To Expect When Starting Out

Running a business takes a lot of work. There’s no way around it. You will come across other internet marketers who may claim differently, but they are probably just trying to sell you the next “make money system” being offered by some other marketer. The truth is it takes work. You will need to spend long hours at your computer. If you do the work, you’ll see it pay off. It really depends on how much time you can devote to it. And also finding the best methods, of course. There’s no point spending a bunch of time on a project that doesn’t pay off very well, or not at all.


It’s Totally Possible To Earn A Living Online

It may be a lot of hard work, especially when you’re first starting out, but once you have a few different websites set up and they’re all earning money straight to your bank account, you’ll know it was all worth it. It can be done if you’re using the best techniques that generate the most sales. This blog is all about reviewing the best ways to earn money online with affiliate programs and other methods.


How Do I Start?

Before starting any web project, you need to know what types of products your site will be promoting. I would stick to subjects that you have a lot of knowledge about. If you’re passionate about a certain hobby, you will have a better chance of success promoting products related to that hobby, because you know about the subject and have a passion for talking about it.

To really earn the most money online, you’re going to need a web hosting account and at least one domain name. When you buy a domain name that you like, you still need a server to build the site on. That’s where the web hosting account comes in. You have the option to order the domain and hosting together, but I like to keep my domain accounts separate from my hosting accounts. Think carefully about the domain name that you want to use. You want a name that’s relevant to the products you intend to promote.


Step 1: Domain Names

Your website’s domain name should be as relevant as possible to the types of products you’re promoting. Make sure to try to get a .com domain name if at all possible. A .com domain is much more professional and desirable than a .info or a .co domain name, for example. If you can’t find a good .com, try to get a good .net domain name. They are the second most desirable domain extensions.

Personally, I recommend that you keep your domains separate from your webhost, I recommend only one registrar for domains, and that’s NameSilo has the best prices, and they offer FREE privacy protection! You won’t find that at Godaddy! Visit


Step 2: Web Hosting

Once you have secured at least one good domain name, it’s time to buy web hosting and get your site up and running. I’ve used lots of hosts, and now I only recommend the very best webhosting companies that have excellent ratings: For an entry-level website that offers the ultimate in simplicity, i choose They offer several different packages for business, but the personal class package is all you need. This host is top-rated in the industry, year after year. Stick with the best, trust me! There are some cheaper ones out there but I found that the performance was terrible. Visit

Step 3: Install WordPress

After you have your domain set up on the webhosting, go into your webhosting control panel. You’ll need to install the WordPress blogging software. Relax, it’s a one-click install. If you’re unsure how to install WordPress, just check out my post ‘How To Easily Launch A Website And Build A Business‘. Be sure to write down the admin password to your WordPress installation. You’ll need that to log in to your site’s back end. From there you’ll want to create a new user account for yourself, or rename the default account to something other than ‘admin’.

That’s it! Obviously, you’ll want to have a nice looking WordPress theme, not some basic free theme that looks highly unprofessional. If you need a free theme to start out, you can browse the free WordPress theme directory right here. I recommend you check out the Suffusion WordPress theme, which is highly customizable. It’s always better to use a premium theme though. You can easily make a very nice site using premium WordPress themes from Theme Junkie or Woo Themes.


Step 4: Set Up Your Site and Earn a Smart Income Online

Setting up your site on WordPress is pretty straight forward. If you need some help, see my post ‘Getting Started With WordPress: From Installation To Adding Content‘ to watch a video walkthrough.
